They’re back! After a long hiatus, Menus4Moms is once again publishing free weekly dinner menu plans. We still have our 52 week dinner menu packs for sale for those who like the extra hand-holding, including downloadable files, grocery lists, nutrition information, and more.
I have tried other menu planning systems and have never found anything else that works for us the way Menus4Moms does. We love the recipes and love the common sense approach to using leftovers and freezer cooking. I recommend the site to EVERYONE! ~Dawn

What to Expect from the Free Dinner Menus
To help you make the most of our meal plans, please read through our Menus4Moms Primer and the Busy Cook’s Pyramid to learn more about how to take advantage of the principles in our meal plans:
We also have a frequently asked questions page that may be helpful.
If you have questions, you can leave a comment on any meal plan page or drop a comment on our pinned “Got Questions?” post on Facebook.
Some personal notes…
I’m not sure what the new free menus will look like over time; I’ve been a pescatarian for several years now, so I’ll probably mix up some of what I’m cooking now, some of what I used in the past, and some of our archives. I expect it may take me a little while to get into the flow of things again.
Menus are dated but can be used any week you want. They don’t have to be used on a specific date. Detailed recipes for side dishes won’t be included unless they are needed (for example, I would include a recipe for macaroni and cheese, but not for sugar snap peas). The new menus will be somewhat scaled back—we won’t be including a grocery list, but it should be easy enough to create one for the items you don’t have on hand.
I hope this will be a long term project, but I need your support. If you are using the menus, please let me know. The more people using them, the more likely that they will continue long-term.
I hope this will take off and I will be able to justify the time it requires, so if you like the menus, please share them on social media and tell your friends about them!
Each menu post will have a summary of the meal items for the week (we do five nights of dinners to allow for leftovers and eating out). If the meal item is a Menus4Moms recipe, we’ll include the recipe card on the menu page to make things easier, but some recipes may be from other sites. If so, we will link to those. Meals generally feed a family of 4-6 but quantities will vary for the different recipes.
You’ll find links to each of the weekly menus on this page, so bookmark it and check back weekly.
Feedback is welcome. Enjoy!
